As in Series 1 and 2, the CCT WE EU Series #3 will boast a prize pool of $50,000. So far, two different teams have won the CCT title, but who’s next? Will either of them be able to defend the title? Nobody knows, but what we do know is that you should expect plenty of  CS:GO action!

As usual, we start with the Play-In phase, set to run between March 29 – April 2, where 16 teams will fight for the four slots available in the following Group Stage. Let’s find out which teams kick off their CCT West Europe Series #3 run in the Play-In phase!
